Custom Designs For You and Your Livestock

Iowa Cattle Barn Builder - Illinois Cattle Barn Builder

As a cattle farmer, you produce and profit from some of the world's most popular food staples: beef and dairy. The image, quality, and construction of your facility are essential to your livelihood. It is important that your cattle are safe from extreme climate and contained in a consistent and stress-free environment. In order to maintain this lifestyle for your cattle, there are many features you must take into consideration, all of which we provide:

  • Mono-sloping roofs: This is a roof designed with one slope which allows for natural ventilation, and takes advantage of the weather year-round, providing shade in the summer and sun exposure in the colder months.
  • Dual-sloping roofs: Like the mono-sloping roof, this roof also allows for natural ventilation and protection from extreme weather.
  • Open sidewalls: Having open walls also allows for natural ventilation, keeping your cows cool during the summer months and able to experience fresh air while still being confined in a safe environment.
  • Concrete wall foundations: The foundation of your facility is extremely important. A good concrete foundation will allow for a safe and reliable building structure, one that will give your cattle sure footing wherever they go.
  • Quality Doors: Whether you prefer a sliding door or a hinged vent door, both are a great addition to your cattle shed and instantly give your building the classic barn image.
  • Insulated metal roofs: Metal roofs are extremely durable and will last as long as the building itself. They are cost-effective and energy-efficient, as well as simply built and easy to install.
  • Natural lighting panels: These panels allow for natural light to pass through the building, giving them the benefits of natural sunlight without harming them with insects and extreme weather.

Our team is committed to using their expertise to provide you with a building to your specifications that is cost-effective and constructed with excellent quality in a timely manner. We build cattle shed pole barns in Iowa and Illinois and are excited to work with you to design and construct your new cattle shed.
